It is 100% possible to transition from college, unemployment, an unfulfilling job, personal/professional roadblocks, or situations of uncertainty and burnout, to an ideal career or new business that aligns with your unique unlimited potential. Note: My strengths do not lend themselves to working with individuals with learning disabilities. It is something I aspire but am not yet equipped. A little about me - I am a University of Illinois graduate, a CPA, and an MBA from the University of Chicago. I have been a coach for 14 years and prior to that a corporate finance leader for + 20 years, overseeing the HR, IT, and finance functions in both Fortune 100 companies and private equity firms. I made a career change from finance to coaching after doing my own Career Exploration work and my learnings from that journey helped me develop my 1:1 Entrepreneurial Coaching for Startups Series and Career Exploration – Connecting To Your Inner GPS Series. Sometimes you just need someone to ask the right questions and the picture will then unfold. I provide executive coaching to startup founders and career coaching, resume writing, and interview prep to high potential individuals seeking to advance their careers in a new direction.

I offer a personalized 3 session Career Exploration coaching series that explores what you could be doing based on your skill set, your passions, the way you are built (i.e. risk-averse vs daredevil, or extrovert vs introvert), the reward systems that work best for you, and your personal definitions of success (professional, financial, work/life balance, etc).

Each of the sessions is approximately 60-70 minutes each, it is a self-paced series (you let me know when you are ready for the next session) . 1:1 ENTREPRENEURIAL COACHING FOR STARTUPS >> Clarity on what success looks like >> Help building an actionable, motivational plan to get there >> Guidance to develop actionable plans to achieve stretch goals >> Identification and removal of roadblocks, allowing you to overcome challenges along the way. >> Assistance to keep high-level goals in focus without getting bogged down in the day-to-day >> Counseling to build momentum with ideas and goals translated into actionable, accountable steps >> Knowledge sharing and encouragement to help you land on your “ah-ha” moments >> Follow best practice and emulate the behaviors of successful founders (why recreate the wheel or fly by the seat of your pants) >> Identify and avoid costly mistakes >> Identify strategies to help your startup avoid difficult times >> Get honest and actionable feedback on your idea, your business model, and your customer acquisition strategy. One resource I always yearned for contemplating a career change and starting down the path of entrepreneurship was someone I could be honest with and with whom I could talk about anything - not someone who was an investor, a friend, or an employee, but an intelligent, experienced and empathetic individual who would listen and provide me tactical and personal advice, guide me in areas that were unfamiliar to me and help me to optimize myself and fulfill my potential. I would love to fill that role for you! *** Explore alternate career options *** *** Clarify your talents, skills, passions, and needs *** *** Revamp your resume, LinkedIn and cover letter *** *** Understand & articulate your personal competitive differentiators *** *** Prepare for Interviews *** *** Enhance leadership and communication skills *** *** Increase confidence and overcome fears and self-imposed obstacles *** *** Create a career strategic growth plan *** *** Work through work conflicts or issues *** *** Navigate co-worker or boss conflict *** *** Evaluate corporate and entrepreneurial opportunities *** I hope this gives you an overview of my process & dedication to helping my clients take that next step in their career and realizing their unlimited potential!

I had a great time with Julie. After returning to the US for the first time in my adult life, along with the added challenge of the pandemic, I was having a tough time cracking the atypical American application process. I came to Thumbtack aiming to find a career coach focused on resume writing and interview coaching. Julie strikes the precise balance I was looking for. Rather than being strictly a motivator or life coach, her extensive experience in business has given her a wealth of knowledge and insight into the bizarrely counterintuitive application and interview processes. With a few meaningful tweaks and an aesthetic redesign of my CV, I started to understand what search software and HR reps are looking for. What I enjoyed most, however, was Julie's interview coaching. Through two 90-minute sessions, she not only workshopped answers to common questions but also helped me to find the balance between providing safely contrived answers and differentiating personal stories. I fully recommend Julie to those looking for a career coach with a wealth of real-life business and professional experience from which to draw. Let it be known, Julie requires that you put forth the effort to get as much out of her services as possible. Do the pre-work to help her get a handle on your expectations, aspirations, experience, and personality. It is well worth the investment. Thanks, Julie!

Julie was wonderful and extremely focused on understanding you and your strengths and challenges. She worked hard to reflect everything she learned about you in a way that both you and any future employer could see these qualities as highly desirable and marketable traits. The resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile sparkled as a result of her knowledge in how to best present and phrase your life experiences and assets so that they stand out. I had an extremely positive experience working with Julie and I look forward to continuing to benefit from her expertise in prepping for upcoming interviews for my future dream job.

When I decided to work with a job coach I had a vague idea about my needs as a professional in the midst of a career change. Julie really took the time and helped me dig deep to really understand my career path and my strengths. Not only did she help me see how valuable I was as an employee but she gave me spectacular advice that I could apply to all areas of my life. I highly recommend Julie for anyone wanting to maximize their individual potential.

I spent quite a while researching career coaching before deciding to work with Julie. During our initial phone conversation, I immediately connected with Julie's energy and coaching style. I knew she would be the perfect choice to guide me into my next steps in my career. I was at crossroads due to some unexpected life changes, and Julie was able to help me figure out where I wanted to land next and define a clearer vision for my future. We then continued our work to create a resume I'm extremely happy with - I highly recommend her services!

Julie is very insightful, and understands what works the best for my specific needs of coaching for the situation. She is also flexible to accommodate my timeline upon time sensitive notice. I’ve had a few coaches in the past but she definitely stands out to be the best.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My goal is to pack the most value into every service I offer and make coaching and extraordinary resumes affordable to all. How much is it worth to you to know exactly what jobs to apply for, exponentially increase your interview callbacks, and also be bulletproof in your interviews? Each one of those things can shave weeks off your job search and get to that perfect job offer. Invest in your happiness and your future, you are worth it.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I schedule a free introductory call to get acquainted and explore what you want to change and what you want to achieve. This call will allow me to begin the resume design process and/or suggest a coaching sequence based on your budget. Depending on the urgency of your needs coaching sessions can be weekly, monthly or anything in between. Resumes are usually completed within 48 hours of receiving needed information from the client.
